10 power light
The power light illuminates and blinks or remains solid
to indicate different states:
• No light — The computer is turned off (S4, S5, or
mechanical OFF).
• Steady green — The computer is in a normal
operating state.
• Blinking green — The computer is in a powersaving state (S1 or S3).
• Blinking or solid amber — See "Power Problems" on
page 123.
To exit from a power-saving state, press the power
button or use the keyboard or mouse if it is configured
as a wake device in the Windows Device Manager. For
more information about sleep states and exiting from a
power-saving state, see "Power Management" on
page 40.

network adapter
connector
To attach your computer to a network or broadband device,
connect one end of a network cable to either a network jack
or your network or broadband device. Connect the other
end of the network cable to the network adapter connector
on your computer. A click indicates that the network cable
has been securely attached.
NOTICE: Do not plug a telephone cable into the network
connector.
On computers with an additional network connector card,
use the connectors on the card and on the back of the
computer when setting up multiple network connections
(such as a separate intra- and extranet).
It is recommended that you use Category 5 wiring and
connectors for your network. If you must use Category 3
wiring, force the network speed to 10 Mbps to ensure
reliable operation.
